Treat Boxes and Freebie

Happy Saturday crafty friends,
Hope you’re weekend has been a good one so far. Today I am sharing a couple of really cute treat boxes I made with files from PaperCraftingWorld.com. First up:  


Candy Corn Treat Box

Here is my Candy Corn Treat Box. I used some wonderful patterned papers from the DCWV Sunday Afternoon (Chevron) and Baby Girl (Orange Squares) Stacks. Along with some American Crafts White Textured cardstock. I used my Sakura black fine tip pen to do the faux stitching around the outer edge.

Here is a side view of the handle. It is designed to look like smaller versions of the candy corn attached together. I thought that was such a cute idea as opposed to just a regular handle.

Here is a top shot showing the handle. When layering the pieces of the handle together, you want to use a good strong adhesive to allow for the curve of the papers.

Here is a close up of one of the free printable tags from the Tag set offered by PCW. You can head over to the PCW  design team blog and pick up the link to get yours. Don’t delay as they are only available for a week and then a new freebie is available. A new freebie goes up every Friday.


Pumpkin Box

Here is my second treat box. A cute little Pumpkin shaped box. I used some more of the fabulous orange patterned paper from the DCWV Baby Girl Stack and for the green leaf and handle, I used a pretty green patterned paper from the DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack. On this side I used one of the nested layers and inked the edges with my Sunset Ink pad from CTMH Adventure Mini Ink Pad Set. I also used another one of the printable tags from the freebie set. I added an orange eyelet and threaded some burlap cord from May Arts through. I inked the stem with some of my Saddle Ink Pad and then edged the leaf and vine piece with my New England Ivy Ink Pad. I used my black fine tip pen to make some faux stitching around the edges of both pumpkin layers. I finished off this side with a pretty black with white polka dot ribbon bow.

Here is a view of the other side of the pumpkin box. The cut file includes nesting layers of the pumpkin shape as well as cuts for this cute face. Once again I inked the stem and vine as well as the face. For the face, I used my Sunset Ink Pad from the Adventure Mini Ink Pad Set from CTMH

Here is a side shot of the handle. I inked the edge of it with my New England Ivy Ink Pad and then added a green matching brad with some layered circle and scallop punch cut outs.

Both boxes come out fairly good sized. the boxes measure approximately 2 1/4 (2 1/5)  x 4 x 3. Several small candies fit nicely in each one.
